Classic throwbak photo of Nnamdi Azikiwe playing American football in 1926

Sir Nnamdi Azikiwe, fondly known as Zik of Africa was the first President of Nigeria and one of the leading figures of Nigerian nationalism.

He would have been 112 today, but he died in 1996. Below is a picture of 22 year old Zik playing American football at Storer College, USA in 1926.

Happy posthumous birthday, Zik!
